Forum: GratefulDead Subject: YESSSS! ........... truly like pat

wow -- nice call man! i was searching a bit for a comparison, for JERRY's pseudo jazz style and for lack of anything better, i went with Pat Martino -- but i think this video REALLYmakes the point --

for a rock band, jerry was unusual, playing lead guitar like a HORN -- and these pat martino videos show that sort of approach taken to A WHOLE.....NUTHA....... LEVEL! jerry could play in a similar style to this but he would sound like a hot Bluegrass Picker -- not as JAZZY as pat -- but yet, THE TONE is very similar, and the ONE-LINE Horn Player type of approach -- AND YES, whether true or not, Pat plays like a CAT who has smoked his share of joints.....

would have been fun to hear him sit in on a gooey 73 Playin..... pat martino
